It's that time again, Indy readers. Today's issue includes the official 2011 Best of Missoula ballot, the starting point to the paper's annual celebration of everything and everyone that makes Missoula what it is.
Here's what you need to know:
You can vote with a paper ballot by picking up this week's print edition, filling out a ballot and dropping it off in a ballot box. Or you can vote online, where there are tons of special online-only categories.
This year's contest includes a few first-time categories (Best Bar Food, Best Missoula Character, Best Green/Eco-Friendly Business), as well as the usual suspects (Best Restaurant, Best Local Band, Best Category We Forgot). All we ask is that you fill out at least 30 categories, and don't fill out more than one ballot.
If you have problems with the online balloting, don't fret. Let us know and we'll help.
Lastly, mark your calendars now for the annual Best of Missoula party on Thursday, July 7, at Caras Park. There will be music, food and drinks, and that's when the winners will be announced.
That's it. Now, get out and vote.
